I'm thinking more of a place where laws, rules and regulations are largely ignored, where police and government are ineffective in enforcement, and where street justice and disregard for others are the predominant factors.

And Tijuana is the only example of that? There is no other cities in the United States like that? Besides the cities in the San Fernando Valley themselves?

Secession is the only real hope for the future of the SFV.

That was attempted a few years ago.

If Mulhulland had only not found a way to get water into the SFV....
"...water was to be used for irrigating the nearby San Fernando Valley, where a syndicate of private investors, many the personal friends of Mulholland and Eaton, had been furiously buying up land with the assurance that its value would skyrocket. This same group of investors was critical in securing passage of the 1905 bond issue that would pay for the Owens River diversion."
from

PBS - THE WEST - William Mulholland


and
"After the construction of the Owens Valley-Los Angeles Aqueduct, the mostly rural area was annexed by the city of Los Angeles in 1915, ..."

I tend to think that neighborhoods like Sherman Oaks, Studio City, and Toluca Lake will be nice for a long time to come. It's mostly the interior part of the valley that's not so desirable.

Agree? Disagree?

Encino, Sherman Oaks/Studio City South of the Blvd only... I worked at a business on Ventura Blvd in between Studio City and Sherman Oaks. You could look across the street and see the million dollar homes scattered all over the hills; I would then go around back to park my car and see apt's with graffiti all over them. The Blvd is literally the border now.

That's good information. Thanks for responding.

It's interesting that those formerly nicer areas have gone downhill, while other neighborhoods that were known as "bad areas", such as Highland Park, have become more appealing. Northeast L.A., in general, seems to have become more desirable over the last 10 years, as the lower SFV has become less desirable.
